PROJECT: Port Adelaide Waterfront Redevelopment

Yay, finally

Port waterfront project starts
LOUISE TRECASSI, the Advertiser
23sep04

WORK on the biggest port development in Australia – the $1.2 billion Port Adelaide waterfront project – will begin immediately.

The State Government yesterday signed an agreement with development consortium Newport Quays for the project.

It will take between 10-15 years to complete and is expected to create 4000 jobs.

It includes 2000 homes for up to 4000 residents, public walkways on the waterfront and a park celebrating the Kaurna heritage of the area.

There will be commercial opportunities for waterfront dining and retail outlets.

The deal has the Government's Land Management Corporation working with Newport Quays. The consortium comprises international property group Multiplex and SA-based developer Urban Construct. Premier Mike Rann said work would start immediately and would breathe new life into Port Adelaide.

"For years people have said it lacks life. It's always been about the potential and now it's about the potential becoming a reality," he said. "The Port is coming alive again and it couldn't be a better week for it." Urban Construct director Todd Brown said the development would incorporate existing heritage qualities in a world-class development.

The redevelopment includes six precincts of multi-storey and high-rise buildings, reserves, promenades, boardwalks, museums, cafes, tourist and commercial property.

Port Adelaide Enfield mayor Fiona Barr said local residents were against proposed 12-storey high-rise buildings.

"What we don't want to see is the Port turning into another Glenelg," she said.

Mayor sounds like a NIMBY

No 12 storey buildings for the Port, why not?
I wont be like the Gold Coast. Any anyway
the Port has those other buildings which are
the same height so what is the difference.
He makes reference to Glenelg. Glenelg has
turned out great compared to what it
once was, now it is a real tourist drawcard.
Suppose the NIMBY group hate visitors
crowding the streets and shops.

Comeon Mayor move with the times and dont
get fooled into supporting the NIMBY minority.

Kick-off for Port Adelaide development
Ben Wilmot
23 September 2004

The South Australian government yesterday signed an agreement with long-time preferred development consortium Newport Quays to start the $1.2 billion redevelopment of Port Adelaide's waterfront.

The consortium, which is a joint venture between Multiplex Group and local firm Urban Construct, will work with the SA Land Management Corporation.

The state government expects to spend about $65 million on land development. It expects to recoup up to $40 million over the life of the project as it will receive a cut of the profit from the mixed development.

The state government will not contribute capital to the venture beyond land development works.

The SA government said yesterday that more than 4000 jobs would be created and $900 million spent in construction work over the project's 10- to 15-year life. The redevelopment includes 2000 residential dwellings and will house between 3000 and 4000 people.

Urban Construct director Todd Brown said the three kilometres of waterfront in Port Adelaide was one of the last inner-harbour areas left to be developed in Australia after Fremantle in Western Australia and Melbourne's Docklands precinct were completed. "It is the best piece of development land by a long shot," Mr Brown said, adding that Urban Construct would focus on project management and marketing while Multiplex would be the primary builder.

He said preliminary mediation work would be done on industrial areas and the first lot of houses would be sold next year, with commercial and industrial sites to follow.

The Newport Quays plan incorporates four 12-storey apartment towers, which have views to the coast, the city and the Adelaide Hills, but most of the residential buildings will range from three to seven storeys. It includes the redevelopment of the seven-storey SA Marine and Harbours building that stands on the dockside.

However, some residents have objected to the proposed height for buildings on the harbour.

This is excellent news for the state, and it's even better that work will start immediately, unlike other developments which can take up to 2-3 years to start.

And I don't understand why people get so hysterical with 40m buildings, what a small town mindset.

This was just on Ten news before. According to Ten news, there's not a lot of people against this project at all, in fact, a large majority is for the proposal. Also mentioned was that two of four proposed 12 storey residentials were to be built adjacent to Glanville railway station. I did not hear of the location of the others, nor any other details as I did not watch the whole news presentation.

Tonight I have just watched the PortPower Footballers in a motorcade in Melbourne with city hirise as a backdrop, and everybody looked very happy. What a joke these smallminded people are that want to keep Port Adelaide looking not much different from when it was known as 'Port Misery'. Twelve story buildings would add a 'substantial element' to the area, and it is needed.

The other 12 storey height limit zone is pretty much across the road.

It will look great, every building will be capable of having a view of the harbour.

We all may joke about NIMBY's, but in this case, LMC, developers and the state government used an extremely deliberate approach to exclude the public from having any sort of input that would threaten the project. People aren't just opposed because they don't like tall buildings, rather, if you're living in Port Adelaide right now you're not going to be the most financially well off, and redevelopment followed by a raise in property value (and rates) will push out just about all the current residents. That's a very real issue in my mind.

From today's Advertiser:



High-rise go-ahead at Port
By Real Estate Editor LOUISE TRECCASI
06oct04
BUILDINGS up to 12-storeys high will be allowed in the $1.2 billion Port Adelaide Waterfront redevelopment.

The State Government has approved a Plan Amendment Report, setting guidelines for the development. The PAR allows four, 12-storey buildings to be built in the Newport Quays and Fletcher's Haven precincts. Other areas are restricted to lower heights.

Key recommendations in the PAR, which was reviewed after submissions in a two-month community consultation period mid last year include:

PUBLIC walkways and bikeways that link to open spaces

CLEAR sightlines and views of the waterfront

EXTRA flood protection policies

EXTENDING public promenade.

"The recommendations reflect and balance the Port's local maritime character, along with tourism, business and community opportunities," Planning SA director of planning policy Simone Fogarty said.

The total redevelopment, which will take between 10-15 years to complete, includes 2000 homes for up to 4000 residents, public walkways on the waterfront, reserves, promenades, boardwalks, museums, cafes, tourist and commercial property.

Alison Hastings, of Exeter, said 12-storey buildings were "out of scale" for the area.

"I want the development to complement the suburb and have no AAMI stadium effect, meaning everybody should get the same view of the water," she said.

"There would be lots of us down here who don't want to stand in the way of development but don't want our present heritage and amenity taken away and given to those who will dwell in the development.

"The development needs to add to Port Adelaide and we all need to share it."

Port Adelaide Enfield councillor Johanna McLuskey is concerned about the council's agreement to take liability control of a pedestrian bridge in the "Dock One" precinct. "For the first 12 months after the bridge is completed, the developer has all liability," she said.

"But, after this time, the council has the responsibility for any risks. So, if after 12 months, something goes wrong, council is financially responsible.

Council has also accepted responsibility for pockets of land within the development which is another risk for council which could face contamination problems."


The Government has signed an agreement with consortium Newport Quays which comprises international property group Multiplex and SA-based developers Urban Construct.

That is excellent news. If anyone in Adelaide has money, they should be purchasing an apartment or town house in this new area ASAP. It will boom once its been completed.

Thats great news, and yes i reckon your right the rest of the area will boom. I cant wait for the State Government to release its Transport Plan at the end of the year as i believe that in line with this big development we may se a light rail link established to the Port (possibly down the center of Port Road).

The state government won't duplicate PT infrastructure - if we get light rail to the Port, then that means goodbye outer harbour train, and puts my own line in doubt as well.

There's a Port Adelaide aerial flythrough at this link http://www.hypervision.com.au/level-...ye/wharves.mpg showing the port river, wharves and town centre. The actual site areas are on the margins of the views.

The link comes from http://www.hypervision.com.au/level-...rdseye2002.htm which has loads of other promotional clips showing adelaide and the rest of the state - the Adelaide skyline clips are quite good although low res.

Hope you've got broadband
